Rated 5 out of 5 by I don't hit the trail without wearing this product Buy this product you will not be disappointed! Just hope they bring back the od green color so i can buy another. August 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really enjoy this I really enjoy wearing this kilt. I haven't had it long, but have worn it to work (it gets hot in the office & the a/c doesn't work), social gatherings, meetings, and around the house. You get some comments, but mostly just "look what he's doing now". The only criticism I have is that the "modesty snaps" don't work at all. The snaps come apart as soon as I bend over, or sit down. The only time they stay together is if I snap them and stay totally upright. August 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great materials, poorly designed. The good: This kilt is very light weight, and made with premium materials. I love how soft the area around the waist is. Additionally the DWR is fantastic and this kilt washes really well, no ironing required! I like the design of the modesty system as it's easy to use and not bulky like other brands. The bad: There are only two pockets, which if you're like me is not enough. No belt loops is another thing that turns me off to this kilt and integrated belt is terrible, it's very flimsy. Since it's such a small size you can't even switch it out with something firmer. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My sweltering crotch thanked me. Probably the nicest piece of clothing i've ever put on. Softer than anything else I own next to the skin. Just spent 30 minutes trying on different shirts with it for my girlfriend. Her only comment is that the fabric on the front doesn't leave much to the imagination when going elkommando. YMMV. Doesn't bother me a bit! Love the color (Shark) and getting used to the length (about where cargo shorts hit back of my calves at the knee, worn on hips about 3-4" below waistline - 5'11") July 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable material I purchased for my husband for Father's Day. He picked me up at work in it and when I saw his he looked 10 lbs slimmer. The girls at work went nutty over it and wanted their husband to have one. He says he loves the fit, quality, material and says it's cool and comfortable. This is not our last kilt!! I think it's sexy!! July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by JUST GET IT I was like you once. Checking out the kilt every few months, reading the reviews. Wondering if it could really be worth it. The answer is YES. Once you wear it you'll never go back. The freedom of movement is incredible. Yes, some people give you strange looks. Who cares. Don't knock it till you try it, this thing is life changing. Typical MH quality. Surprisingly water resistant. Super durable material. A wee heavy, but not bad at all. For this level of toughness you can't expect much lighter. This thing has held up on some seriously gnarly hikes..just get it! June 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 2nd! Loved my first one so much, I bought the other color! Fits me very well, as I have high hip bones and the design compliments them, or at least I think so, as the girls often give me a second look (some of the guys too). Functionally, the kilt increases my stride by about a foot since there isn't any resistance down yonder and I've even opened it up and used it to haul firewood. Bombproof construction! June 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by pleased with the product On my initial order I found the kilt too small and the exchange/return process was amazing. The is the first time I have done business with you folks and it was a great experience. I wear a kilt for hiking and got a lot of comments to say the least. June 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very little leeway in waist sizing The sizing for the Elkommando differs from traditional kilts. Traditional kilts' waist sizes are measured at the thickest part of the waist, usually under the belly button. I ordered med at first, but was so large and it fell off (at home thank goodness, not on the trail!). Reordered size small (30-31 waist). There is very little margin for error on the waist sizing. It has two snaps for the waist and one snap lower on the front for flap control (modesty ). Suggest in future production a couple snaps for variations in waist size since how a kilt hangs differs body types (I'm med/slender). I usually don't snap the lower snap as it pulls, bunches and restricts movement. March 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Shark comparison to old Otter I received wore and washed my new Shark ElKommando. The design and fabric seems identical to my original Otter color. Compared to the Otter the Shark weighs exactly the same. The only differences I can spot are, with the Shark, the Mountain Hardware logo on the lower left apron is in color matching grey instead of the light grey and yellow of the Otter and the belt is solid black instead of the black with grey stripes of the original Otter. My Shark fabric seems slightly more pliable than the original first run Otter. Ergo the weighing. I think this kilt looks better than the dark olive Otter and will see more use about town. Like the USAK Sterling tartan, the Shark grey goes with everything. Looking over the Otter, 5 years old, used in several camping/fishing trips and washed a lot, I am quite impressed with the spotlessness. Only a slight amount of fuzziness is visible from wear and tear! The DWR treatment on the fabric has shed all stains from coffee, cooking, cleaning fish and frying bacon. It still sheds water well. DWR must mean Durable Water Repellant. I am either careful around grease or the finish also keeps grease from setting in this nylon microfiber. February 5, 2015
